The Benefits of Facial Peels with or without Microdermabrasion

By Dr. Carolyn Houss, DO

Just about anyone, male or female, young or old, can realize the benefits of a program of skin exfoliation. Facial peels remove the top layer of old, dry, dead skin cells and allow the newer, younger, fresher skin cells to move to the surface. Skin then looks cleaner, fresher and has a more vibrant glow. It doesn’t matter if you are a first timer, brand new to facial peeling techniques or a seasoned veteran looking for the newest, more-aggressive treatment for your complexion.

Results you can expect:

  • Deeply cleanse and soften your skin
  • Revitalize and restore lost luster
  • Fade sun damage an age spots
  • Smooth texture and make pores appear smaller
  • Eliminate fine age lines
  • Soften mild acne scars

Each facial should be chosen by your skin care specialist, with your skin in mind. Each peel uses a particular type of acid that is tailored to accomplish what you wish. Whether you want to peel a lot or just brighten up lack luster skin.

There are glycolics and fruit acids as well as stronger more potent TCA or Salicylate among others. All peels can be intensified by microdermabrasion. A peel with a microdermabrasion session works together to hasten results.
